China is a land of many possibilities, and while they are starting to cement their permanent place as a great manufacturing hub, they also happen to have this particular stigma attached – that is, to roll out counterfeit products that range from food to consumer electronics. It seems that there were people who were capable of assembling a fully working iPhone via sub-assemblies that were purchased off the Internet a […]
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I suppose that saying rings true when it comes to the world of smartphones, as we have seen our fair share of clones in the past. This time around, the Landvo S6 would be the particular model that takes center stage, and if you are quick enough, you would know that this happens to be a clone of the Samsung […]
Now this is certainly a mammoth sized task – in every sense of the world, literally and figuratively. Basically, Hwang Woo-Suk is not a person without controversy – his claim to fame would be the false claims of having cloned human stem cells. Well, the South Korean researcher happened to be in Siberia not too long ago, having drilled cells from the bones of a 28,000 year-old frozen wooly mammoth, […]
Well, it had to happen – the iPhone 6 being cloned, that is. After all, this is not the first time that Apple’s flagship device had undergone a cloning process, and you can be darn sure that it will not be the last, either. The UleFone Dare N1 pays homage to Cupertino’s latest smartphone model and it does seem to pay careful attention to follow the original’s design as closely […]
Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but surely there comes a time when it might be a wee bit too much to have that many different clones for a particular device. Of course, with Apple’s successful iPhone range, you know for sure that there will be a slew of cloned devices out there – and nary a single one of those will run on the iOS platform. This […]
As far as iPhone clones go, the Dakele 3 is surely one of them that would go on to be an extremely memorable one – where it will run on the Android mobile operating system instead, complete with a regular microUSB port. The Dakele 3 is shameless in the manner in which it copies the general shape as well as form and size of the iPhone 6, not to mention […]
It was rather interesting to read of a Chinese company accusing Apple of copying their design to incorporate it into the best selling iPhone 6, and here we are with what can be deemed to be a reverse – with the funnily named Dakelele Big Cola 3 having debuted in the world’s most populous country, where it shares an uncanny resemblance with the iOS-powered device from Cupertino.
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and it is certainly interesting to note that Dong Nguyen’s Swing Copters has already seen a fair number of clones hit the Play Store not too long after it was released. Being more of a vertical version of Flappy Bird, Swing Copters’ clones has pushed the real game down the pecking order so much so that the chances of actually […]
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – well, if that is the case, then the folks over at OnePlus (who recently messed up in their advertising campaign) might be interested to know that the OnePlus One smartphone already has a clone, and where else but China would this particular clone be revealed.
So, are you still a firm supporter that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? While we do know that the next generation iPhone 6 smartphone is well on its way, very little else is known about it – which goes to show how well Apple guards their secrets, although there is an odd leak or two from time to time. Having said that, why not show up with an […]
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but would you really want someone to imitate your hard work, and then make a profit from it simply by offering most of what you can at a far lower price, not to mention they do not need to go through the painful and long hours of research and development? That might be on one end of the extreme, but […]
The iPhone 5s comes in three different colors, but it is not surprising to hear that Apple’s gold iPhone 5s is the best seller among the lot for obvious reasons. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, here is the GooPhone i5S that happens to arrive in gold, and needless to say, it is a clone of the iPhone 5s, which will retail for $199.99 a pop – without […]
The things that you read in the news these days, now I know that what you are about to embark on is not exactly full of GHz and RAM figures, but at least there is some semblance of bio-technology involved. Apparently, Harvard Professor George Church is convicted that there is enough DNA available which can be extracted from fossils in order to achieve cloning, somewhat like how dinosaurs were created […]
You cannot deny that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one high end smartphone that has done extremely well in the markets where it has appeared in, and there is the proverb which goes like this – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The Nova N3 pays homage to the Galaxy S3 by looking more or less exactly like it, although it costs just a fraction of the price. Spotted […]
